Lady Chucks sweep four-of-four in host tournament

September 12, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy girls' golf team played host to the four teams in its division Monday at the Punxsutawney Country Club and walked away with a still-undefeated record, scoring the lowest team total (228) and defeating DuBois, Brookville, Ridgway and Brockway.

Because Punxsy was the host, each team scored against Punxsy, so Punxsy's record, 1-0 entering the day, improved to 5-0 after the sweep.

Punxsy was led by Sarah London, who shot a 52 on the nine-hole course.

DUBOIS — When it rains, it pours. And when it pours, it makes it difficult to maintain the rough at a golf course. But the deep rough wasn't enough to slow the Punxsy boys' golf team, as it defeated DuBois at the DuBois Country Club Monday afternoon, 178-194.

By winning, Punxsy avenged a 162-165 loss at the Punxsutawney Country Club Aug. 29 and put its destiny in its own hands headed into a match at Brookville next Tuesday.

"If we beat Brookville a week from (today), Bradford will come here for the AML championship," Punxsy head coach Josh Conrad said.

Brookville runs over Keystone for first win

September 12, 2011

KNOX — The Brookville Raiders varsity football squad evened its record at 1-1 with a dominating 36-6 victory over the Panthers of Keystone.

Raiders head coach Chris Dworek said he was pleased with the whole team effort, as both the offense and defense shined in Friday night's victory.

"It is a big relief (to win)," Dworek said. "The guys work hard most of the time, so it's something that you earn. It makes it feel even better, knowing that they worked hard and earned it. It's like cashing a paycheck, so they feel pretty good about themselves."
